The owner of this backpack was asking for handouts at an exit off the interstate. He has everything he owns in that backpack. Let’s assume for the sake of my point that his needs are legitimate. If so, then this man is in a situation where a BLESSING would be a BURDEN. He only has enough room for what he can carry. If someone blessed him with clothes, shoes, coats, a sofa, a bed, etc., there’s NOTHING he could do with it. He has no where to put it.

If you are disappointed because you don’t have everything you want, stop and give God some praise if He’s blessed you with ROOM FOR MORE.

If you don’t have room for more right now, stop and give God some praise that in your current state, YOUR CUP IS RUNNING OVER.

And, please be sure to pray for the young man with the backpack. Pray that God blesses him with ROOM FOR MORE, and the wisdom to manage it.

1 Thessalonians 5:8 (NKJV)

8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.



God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
